The mission of the GLOW and YMLP Youth Development Progrаm is to develop the inherent potential found in the young women and men of Macedonia by providing them with the skills and knowledge necessary to become active leaders in their communities. This is realized through experiential education that celebrates diversity, builds academic and social competencies, and promotes English language literacy.
GLOW and YMLP Clubs are youth-led Clubs housed in diverse communities around Macedonia. The Clubs provide an opportunity for young men and women to become leaders in their communities. These youth are often GLOW or YMLP Camp alumni who, through GLOW and YMLP Club activities, are able to apply what they have learned at Camp about leadership and civic engagement in their communities. Clubs hold two meetings monthly and are responsible for one community service project each school semester.
At this moment we support the GLOW and YMLP youth clubs in 25 communities all over Macedonia. There are 18 GLOW clubs and 7 YMLP clubs.
GLOW and YMLP clubs is result of the successful partnership between YMCA Bitola and Peace Corps Macedonia since July 2016.
This year the GLOW and YMLP clubs service projects are possible thanks to the generous support of our corporate partners:
OKTA – gold sponsor
Lynx Resources – silver sponsor
Alkaloid, EVN, and Zdravje Radovo – bronze sponsors and
TAV Airports and TTK Bank as sponsors.
This program since the beginning has been supported by the US Embassy in Macedonia.
